I support stabilizing bug-free newer versions of maintainer-needed
packages that already have stable versions.  I'm not sure I'd extend
that to stabilizing packages that have no stable versions already.

I see getting stable users on the ~arch version as a win-win since it
means less maintenance of older version (without a maintainer), and
will likely give the stable user a more stable experience in reality
than what they already have.

Those benefits don't exist for a package that has no stable versions
to begin with.
